Continue the discussions in the new thread.

I found the Comic book with 2 figures at Copperfield Walmart. I picked up 2 out of 3.

Just curious if there are any Shuttles left at any Target. My nephew tells me now he wants one since he saw a friend with one. I messed around and didn't pick up one so I can't help him. I figured after paying 130 for the one from FAO I'd leave that one alone.

Any help would be appreciated.

I haven't seen one in a while. I read where they've been clearanced to $40.00 in some areas, so finding one might be a little harder now, but I will keep my eyes peeled for ya.

I was suprised how fast those shuttles sold, I haven't seen any for a while.

Welcome home, Huff! We're in the middle of our move and I can't believe how much crap I've accumilated in just 8 years.
When we've settled I'll be firing up the old EBay sales.

You should dig up the dpci from the forums and take it the customer service desk. Ask for a Location Check. They'll tell you if there are any in the Houston area. They can actually do the whole state, though some clerks will tell you they can't (either lazy or don't know how...)

I did see two shuttles on the diecast aisle a few days after Christmas at either Taylor/10 or San Filipe/610; sorry I don't recall which one now.

ps. Please email or call me about that Mace set.

Meyerland also got their ML shipment in.
Although I got the last full set. Only 1 Beast & Banshee were left.

On the SW front, I got my Sideshow Bib Fortuna a few days ago, and the Salacious Crumb creature pack is shipping out soon.
I also got my Republic Commando box set (which looks pretty awesome)
And Meyer Park Wal-Mart has the Cantina Band Tins on a clearance aisle for $20.

If anyone is still looking for the white Endor Rebel Trooper, Target @ San Felipe had several as of this afternoon around 5:00pm. I also found the Titanium Classic Battlestar Galactic Viper there too.

Happy New Year!!!

I also got my Republic Commando set in last week, and they're awesome! I picked up the comic 2-packs of Star Wars figures at the Wal-mart on Hwy 6 & Hwy 90 (Sugarland) on Tuesday morning. They still had 2 full sets when I left.

Imperial Death Star Briefing coming!

Just a heads up for those that ordered the Star Wars Imperial Death Star Briefing Action Figure Set from Entertainment Earth. Originally, they had it listed as backordered until February, but they just charged by credit card for it and my account at EE says that it's processing. I haven't heard of anyone getting their set yet, so I thought I would bounce the info in here!

Cool. I ordered my set from Bedrock. That way I save on shipping.
Not only is my Salacious Crumb set from Sideshow shipping, but the VCD Yoda I ordered will be processing next week as well.
Heh, and they say nothing happens in January.


And at least I know Target is also getting the latest Saga wave. I picked up R5-J2, and one Sith Training Maul was leftover.
I also saw the latest Marvel Icons, but I'm saving up for the Icons scale movie Ghost Rider, complete with motorcycle!
It's being spotted at Wal-Mart w/ a $40 price tag.

I've found the comic book packs on three seperate occasions now (2 WMs, and one Target), but all I ever find is the Vader/Antillies one (multiples, at that). Are these shipping in greater numbers than the other two? Are the other two just that much better (or this one that much worse)
? What's going on?

Thanks for the tip. I found one at the Meyer Park WM this morning. It turned out awesome!
They were also putting out the regular movie figures. They look pretty decent but they seem smaller. Especially Vengeance, compared to the ML version.
Blackheart is the shortpack, btw.

I think the comic pack with Han in Stormtrooper disguise would be the favorite. If he didn't have the comic book coloring on him, he would probably be the best Han in Stormtrooper disguise that was ever made (no matter that it's kit bashed, it still a good figure)! I don't mind the blue markings too much, but the red lenses on the helmet have to go! Hopefully, they'll re-release this one on a card with movie colors!

I've ran into the same thing everytime I saw the comic book packs. I'm yet to run across the Han/Chewie one either.

I hope everyone stays warms and avoids the major cold front the media believes is going to take over our state and put us almost at emergency level.
I tell you people for the midwest and up are just laughing at the crazy dire conditions the cold weather is going to
do Hoston.

Hi! I've never posted in this area before, but I live in Spring, just outside the Woodlands in Augusta Pines. I collect the main 3 3/4 in. line (one of everything except maybe troops, an opener/displayer), Galactic Heroes, MR's scaled replicas, and whatever else catches my fancy.
I have seen (and already bought) the comic sets, and have seen them several times at stores in my area. I'm still looking for the camoulflaged S. Battle Droid and the Clone Lt.

Bedrock City got in the Death Star Briefing set.
I picked up mine this evening and 2 were left on the front display case.
Price is $39.99, and it's a great set. It looks like you can take it out of the box and still keep the table & backdrop intact for a nice diorama display.
Besides that I haven't done much hunting lately. Mainly because of the weather, and I guess just giving the stores a chance to restock.
Plus the fact that the Sideshow Jabba is coming soon, and that's gonna be costly.

Re: Felucia and Ilum arrive

What are the dcpi #'s for the 2 packs?

Also, if anyone is still looking for the comic pack with Chewbacca & Stormtrooper Han, there was 1 left at the Target in Richmond/Rosenberg & 3 of the Darth Vader comic packs (like those aren't hard to find!)

Re: Felucia and Ilum arrive

WM at 1960 and N Eldridge had a full endcap of the Saga 2-Packs, some good ones with Cody and Sandtroopers or AT-AT Drivers there, I passed because I don't know if I need more openers.

Re: Felucia and Ilum arrive

The Clear Lake Bedrock Comics didn't have the Imperial Briefing set but ordered it for me. I did pick up some minimate Cylons while I was there.

Todays new home project was to mount the TV over the fireplace....


I have to recharge my drill but the cords will be hidden when I'm done. It was a good omen when we started it up that we got the tail end of The Phantom Menace.

Re: Felucia and Ilum arrive

Looking good! I'm jealous. I can't get a new TV till we move sometime this year(to Florida
). I'm guessing you did all that work in the new house?

I got my Briefing Room set yesterday. Looks nice!

I haven't looked too much lately. I've just been trying to downsize the collection. Strictly 3.75" figs. for me...for now.

Re: Felucia and Ilum arrive

Baybrook Target has the last wave that came out (w/all the Clone Troopers and Battle Droids) If you still need'em. Looked like most figures were there.

Also, I got the Mace WIndu Battalion Battle pack for $4.98. No new Battle Packs there and the other old ones are still $19.99.

Deer Park WM has their VOTC's marked down to $2 but all they have are Endor Hans.

Felucia and Ilum in Richmond/Rosenberg

The Richmond/Rosenberg Target had the Illum (DPCI# 087-06-0835) & Felucia (DPCI# 087-06-1070) in the stock room. I picked up 1 Illum & 2 Felucia, leaving 5 Illum & 10 Felucia still in stock today at around 1:30pm. On the shelf, they also had 2 of the Battle of Geonosis & 2 of the Jedi Training on Dagobah. I left those there since they were just repacks & repaints. They also still had the 1 comic pack with Chewbacca & Stormtrooper Han & 3 of the comic pack of Darth Vader & Rebel Officer. If anyone needs any of those, head on out quick and get some!

Titanium Ships

I just picked up the Star Wars Titanium ships Anakin's Clone Wars Jedi Starfighter, General Greivous' Ship, Ewok on Stolen Speeder Bike, & Endor At-At, at the Walmart at Westpark & Hwy 6 last night at around 1:00am. They had several of each. I'm not sure if this is the first time these have been out, but it is the first time I have seen them in a store near me. I think I remember someone before Christmas seeing these, but I'm not sure. Anyway, pick them up if you need them!

Re: Titanium Ships

I finally tracked down the Clones/Battle Droids wave at the Meyerland Target. An extra set of each figure was left as of this afternoon.
Meyer Park Wal-Mart had the red TIE, Dagobah X-Wing & Dewback Titaniums.
And for you Cars collectors, I saw some new 2-packs: Luigi & Guido in their Ferrari fan gear, and Mikey & Sully from Monsters Inc. They only had one of each so I picked them up for my neph, but that's the first time I've seen either of them. So start looking.
And saints be praised, I FINALLY tracked down a Rocky Balboa figure at the FYE during a run to Katy Mills, reduced to $6.50 no less.
